One Person's Trash
The purpose of this unit is to help the learners understand the extent of the problems associated with trash and its disposal, and provide them with ideas for recycling and reusing.
In this lesson, we learn about landfills and the global and local management of trash.
The learners identify a common area where trash accumulates and plan a clean-up project.
This lesson helps learners see the potential for reusing materials rather than throwing them away. They research and contact community organizations that support recycling efforts.
